FAQ


What makes Happy Time such an enriching environment?

  • Our child-centered approach takes advantage of children's innate ability to create their own curriculum, learning through play. A theme centered curriculum planned and administered by the Director/Teacher, enhances the many choices children have during the day.
  • Our 1-5 ratio of adults to children (compared with 1 to 12 at most schools) provides plenty of adult assistance and offers the children many more choices in materials and play spaces.
  • Research shows: parent involvement results in better academic performance, fewer discipline problems and other long term advantages.
  • Parent involvement and our family friendly environment and program also alleviates the anxiety children often feel as they begin school, so they are more emotionally receptive to learning.
